We booked Reggie who has had very positive reviews and we don't regret the decision. He was marvellous and helped us every slippery steep step of the way up and down. We're not hikers and don't do regular exercise. When we told Reggie his face was a picture. He was worried about us and how long it would take. We... More

This was so worth all the hard work. The review by Justin T on how to reach the trail head was spot on! We took the early ferry from St. Kitts over to Nevis. As an FYI, the ferries run on island time so they may be early or may be late, be sure to give yourself enough time to... More

We used a guide for this hike recommended by the Four Seasons. This was one of the most challenging things I've ever done physically. This is way more than a hike - it is really constant climbing using tree roots, rocks, and ropes to get up a really muddy and wet trail through the rain forest. Our guide was excellent... More

We were recommended the hike up to the peak of Mount Nevis by the concierge at Paradise Beach where we are staying. The staff have been excellent here and so we took their word for it and gave the hike a go! They did warn us that it's not for the weak and on completion we have to agree! We... More

My husband and I went on the up and over hike with Reggie and had an amazing time. Neither of us are hikers/climbers and we had a great time. The entire up and over hike took us about 5 hrs. I definitely recommend booking Reggie as your guide, he was awesome. He tells you exactly where to place your feet... More

This is how to do it. A little background info: my girfriend and I live in Denver, CO and are fairly athletic and have good hiking acumen. We are staying at the Marriott in St. Kitts and wanted to hike Nevis Peak. No one on the island will give you any info on this hike, probably because they want you... More

This is a great hike and everyone is rewarded with a feeling of wellbeing when completed. We have climbed the peak many times with three of us reaching the peak together in 57 minutes earlier in the year, and 34 minutes down. The route was from and back to Peak Heaven. Anybody looking for a challenge should look to beat... More

The hike was a lot longer and steeper than we were expecting. Many parts required you to pull yourself up using ropes and when we got to the summit it was in the clouds so we couldn't see much. However, it was a once in a lifetime experience to climb a volcanic mountain of this height. I'm glad we did... More

All I can say is OH MY GOD this CLIMB was challenging. People, this is not a hike, it's a climb. You will have a full body workout, you will need to take: water, power bars. Wear and pants, appropriate footwear. Our guide was fantastic, he was encouraging and helpful his name is Reggie he is a real athlete! I... More

We did the 'Up and Over' hike with Reggie. I absolutely recommend this over the 'Up and Down' tour, as each side of the volcano is so vastly different in character and foliage and it was an incredible opportunity to experience both. The climb up is fine for anybody who is fit and active - but I suspect it could... More
